§ Mr. Dunnachie
To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland (1) if he will make a statement on the future of the clinical department of the Glasgow school of chiropody;
(2) if he will make it his policy to guarantee the future funding of the Glasgow school of chiropody for the next five years.
§ Mr. Michael Forsyth
I announced on 24 February 1988 my approval for the transfer of Greater Glasgow health hoard's school of chiropody to Queen's college, Glasgow in the higher education sector. The school will continue to be funded by the health board until this transfer is effected and after transfer will be funded in exactly the same manner as other institutions in the higher education sector. The health board is currently considering whether some of the chiropody services provided in a clinic adjacent to the school might be redistributed to other sites in their area.
